I think I need to break out the Verdi-Care.


@cipster, I'm thinking those green deposits on your coin should be addressed too.

Agree - Verdi-Care should stop that in its tracks with no appreciable change in appearance.

Are you sure you guys don't own coin shops? Very impressive! !

If I had your collections, I would burn mine. I'm doing something wrong!

Enjoy what you have regardless of what others may have. They are only material things and you cannot take them with you when you go!
Many collectors have been at this 10, 20, 30...50 years or more, a long time to save up and build.

I have been privileged to know many collectors both on and off CCF with some truly exceptional collections and I feel blessed to be able to both see the treasures of others as well as to share the ones that I do have. Of course, there's always room for upgrades...

Patience, wisdom and prudence will for the most part get you where you want to be, collection-wise, in the long run. A $50 a month investment will let you buy a $600 coin every year (or a $1200 coin every two years, or a $6000 coin after only ten years!) Even with only the cost of two large pizzas a month put away ($25) that's $300 a year, not including any interest you may earn. Start a savings account as a Coin Show Fund (or whatever) and every year or two you can buy something really nice, or several smaller things, or both.

Thanks for the encouragement and words or wisdom.

Why am I still sitting here crying?

Your points are well taken! Thanks!

Someday, I'll update this image. It will automatically improve what is posted here tonight.
I learned a bit more about taking pictures since I made this. But it's a chance for me to post.

My favorite album!
